Secrets of the Court.

Secrets of the Court. He was empty and driven by rage, she was frightened and trapped in her cage. The soldiers of the camp cheered when the king declared the end of the war. England would leave Angloa be and a treaty for trade between the two countries had been set. The war was over and Angloa would slowly heal from the wounds that had been sustained in battle.

Emerson's second in her Tudor court series (following Secrets of the Tudor Court: The Pleasure Palace) begins with Jane . Anne Bassett is not someone I remember coming across in any of the other Tudor books I've read.

Emerson's second in her Tudor court series (following Secrets of the Tudor Court: The Pleasure Palace) begins with Jane Seymour's death after giving birth to a son, Edward, and follows the fortunes of one of her maids of honor, Nan Bassett. Concerned about her position now that her queen is dead, Nan catches Henry VIII's eye almost at once, a dangerous position for a young maid. And while, yes, I suppose TECHNICALLY she could be called Henry's mistress, she was just baaaarely that.

Between Two Queens book. Called 'Nan' by her friends, there is not a lot known about Anne Bassett, this mistress of Henry VIII, except that he had courted her briefly. How far that went is unknown, but Henry seemed to be fond of her.

THE SECRETS OF THE TUDOR COURT SERIES IS "RICH AND LUSHLY DETAILED, TEEMING WITH PASSION AND INTRIGUE," SAID ROMANTIC TIMES. NOW TALENTED KATE EMERSON CONTINUES A SAGA AS DRAMATIC AND SEDUCTIVE AS THE COURT ITSELF. Pretty, flirtatious, and ambitious. Nan Bassett hopes that an appointment at the court of King Henry VIII will bring her a grand marriage. But soon after she becomes a maid of honor to Queen Jane, the queen dies in childbirth. As the court plunges into mourning, Nan sets her sights on the greatest match in the land...for the king has noticed her. After all, it wouldn't be the first time King Henry has chosen to wed a maid of honor. And in newly Protestant England, where plots to restore the old religion abound, Nan may be the only one who can reassure a suspicious king of her family's loyalty. But the favor of a king can be dangerous and chancy, not just for Nan, but for her family as well...and passionate Nan is guarding a secret, one that could put her future -- and her life -- in grave jeopardy should anyone discover the truth. Based on the life of the real Anne Bassett and her family, and drawing extensively from letters and diaries of the time, Between Two Queens is an enthralling picture of the dangers and delights of England's most passionate era.
  • I really enjoyed this tale told through the words of Jane Popyncourt; an historical figure that appears with a cameo role in many Tudor novels, but whom rarely gets the attention that Ms Emerson has given her in this novel. With not much being known about Popyncourt the author had dramatic license to be able to create a tale of mystery and intrigue around her central character, which I really enjoyed.
    There are many novels out there based upon the court of Henry VIII and after having read a few of them I took a break from them for a little while. This was the first novel set in his court that I have read recently, which is perhaps why I found it a refreshing story, although I don't think this is the only reason. There were many other plots developing in this novel, aswell as the one based upon Henry VIII slowly losing interest in his first queen. The story of Mary Tudor and Charles Brandon is brought to light, aswell as the story of the Duc de Longueville being a prisoner of war in England for some time. When you combine these stories alongside the main story of Jane Popyncourt trying to shed light on her mysterious family history, you'll find that the author has succeeded in creating a brilliantly diverse and entertaining novel.
    The only reason I gave this novel four stars instead of five was because I would have liked to have seen more development in the early stages of the love interest between Popyncourt and Guy Dunois. Even though the author had made it obvious where things were headed, if more sparks would have flown in the earlier stages it would definitely have helped the reader to become more emotionally committed to the two becoming a pair.

  • And not because of flowery language or obscure unfamiliar terms. It's just I can't seem to flow with this story, and so picking the book up then putting it back down after a few pages. Plus, offhand references to "what happened" (the death of) to Queen Ann Boleyn" are distracting and seem an attempt to downplay that significant painful event into near obscurity. That said - those references are somehow uncomfortable for me, although I suppose are necessary to build this book's characters, a necessity for those familiar with the history through the works of other authors. But how could it? This is a story within a story within a story - and may be why I'm having such difficulty concentrating on this tale - of a vain, simple-minded but ambitious mid-15th century English girl with obscure beginnings who aspires to make a name for herself at the court of King Henry VIII. One of the main female characters, Nan, has a character and personality disturbingly identical to that of Katherine, Henry VIII 5th wife - a wife he also accused of adultry and had beheaded at the Tower of London (that must be one haunted place). This story has Nan catching the King's eye - and interest -in nearly the exact same manner as his child bride Katherine -but "Nan" is not Katherine. I found the story well-written and would be absorbing if I wasn't already familiar with so many of the sigificant historical characters and read other books on the same subject by different authors. I'm having trouble staying connected to this story but that's to be expected and is no reflection on the great work of this author. Other than that - this is a well-written tale of the motives of the characters who revolve around court life - an enjoyable read.

  • I REALLY enjoyed this book. I found that when I wasn't reading it, I was looking forward to when I would be able to pick it back up. I read Ms. Emerson's first book from this series, 'Pleasure Palace', and while it started out great, I felt she kinda dropped the ball as far as holding the readers attention during the majority of the book. That was NOT the case with 'Two Queens'.

    I liked how the story is told from the perspective of a women who sits a bit outside of the Tudor drama. Anne Bassett is not someone I remember coming across in any of the other Tudor books I've read. And while, yes, I suppose TECHNICALLY she could be called Henry's mistress, she was just baaaarely that. As Ms. Emerson tells it, they only did the deed once...and Henry was very, very drunk at the time. Nan (as she's called) is much of the time in close proximity to the King and reigning Queen of the moment (she is after all a Lady in Waiting), but she has her own story on the side...and it's definitely a good one.

    We follow Nan as she grows up...starting as a young girl with hopes of beating out her sister to be chosen to serve the Queen (a very pregnant Jane Seymour at the start), who hopes to meet a titled and rich husband...to a girl who falls for a man she can never have, yet will risk everything for him. Finally, as Nan deals with a huge upset pertaining to her own family, she realizes her prospects for the future have been forever altered, and she settles into a more quiet, realistic life for someone of her position.

    In the end, if you're interested in reading this, I say go for it. It's not necessary at all for you to read 'Pleasure Palace' first, as the two books aren't really connected in anyway besides them both focusing on the Tudor court. I was definitely hesitant to give Ms. Emerson a try again after being slightly disappointed in her first novel, but I'm so glad I did. This was an absolute pleasure to read.
